Gentle Retinol Smoothing Serum

(5 customer reviews)



SKU 1011MB Category

A gentler version of our potent clinical-grade retinol, formulated for sensitive skin types. Retinoids are very unstable molecules that require the right quality, concentration levels and conservation process to retain its characteristics and deliver results. By using only the highest grade stabilized all-trans retinols, this serum increases collagen production and accelerates skin cell renewal to reduce and prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also brightens complexion and fades dark spots to reveal a smoother and more evenly-toned skin. The addition of Green Tea Polyphenols and Caffeine provide your skin with soothing and calming agents, while Hyaluronic Acid keeps the right hydration balance to counteract the dryness effect of retinol on your skin. Despite being gentle, this product is still concentrated (2X), and might increase skin sensitivity; it must be used as part of a routine that includes a Physical Sunscreen with SPF 50 protection or higher. It is most effective in combination with other products from Dr. Lodha’s skincare line.

Delivery in 3-5 working days. Free delivery on all orders above $50 (within continental USA).

    Perfect addition to my current skincare routine! I have really sensitive skin and this one worked well for me. I have been using this retinol for about 2 months now and have been gradually increasing the usage. I have not noticed a big difference in my skin. I mix it with facial oil at night, and I wake up with a glow! I love this product.

    This is the best stuff ever. I was on the search forever for a good SPF moisturizer, and this is it. It hydrates my skin perfectly and doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy. There is no white film, and it sits perfectly under makeup. Great for everyday wear. Most of the creams break my skin out, and so far this hasn’t. Love it!

    I was struggling with this product at the beginning because it was drying out my skin. I wrote to Doctor Lodha on Instagram and someone from his team recommended to use less product. It made such a huge difference! I feel like I have less fine lines and my skin is smoother, and use only a very small amount every night before bed time. I will recommend this product.

    I have sensitive skin and the website recommended the Gentle Retinol for me. I tried many brands of retinols, and they either have a low concentration of retinol, or they are too aggressive on my skin. The Gentle Retinol from Pura is the best product – it is high concentration but gentle at the same time!!

  5. Hana Reznikov

    My skin felt the smoothest when I started using the Gentle Retinol in combination with the Green Tea cleanser – both amazing on sensitive skin!! I am recommending to all my girlfriends!
